Band Competition

 Friday night was Jacob's first band competition.
He's in a middle school marching/concert band, and they are such a cute group of kids.
Here they are walking in, absolutely quiet, in front of the judges.

 They played three pieces.  We sat there listening, and watching the judges writing frantically and flipping through scores of music.

 I tried catching him and his tuba buddy on their way out, but even with those monster instruments, they were too fast for a good photo.
Oh, well.  
The band got a 2nd, and Jacob said he really enjoyed it.
Two more weeks and he will be at solo and ensemble where he will play a tuba solo and play in a brass ensemble of 6.
So thankful for these opportunities for him!
